This is the world's first Glow-in-the-Dark bike path in Nuenen, Netherlands was just unveiled by Studio Roosegaarde, an innovative social design lab that has risen to prominence for their explorations at the intersection of people, art, public space, and technology. The Van Gogh-Roosegaarde bike path (Nuenen is the hometown of Van Gogh and the city commissioned the path as a tribute) is coated in light-emitting paint and embedded with small, mosaic-like LEDs that suck power from a nearby solar array. Charging all day, the path glows nearly all night.
"The new Van Gogh-Roosegaarde bicycle path is made of thousands glowing stones inspired by 'Starry Night'. It charges at daytime and gives light at night. The path combines innovation with cultural heritage in the city of Nuenen NL, the place where Van Gogh lived in 1883."
